Apple Watch Will Automatically Change Band Color To Match Your Dress! Patent Filed For "Watch Band With Adjustable Colour" Feature

Reports have confirmed that Apple is looking into ways to make the Apple Watch band change color to match the user’s outfit and alert them to information.

A recently granted patent reportedly appears to show it doing just that.

Patent of Color Adjusting Band Granted To Apple

“Watch Band With Adjustable Colour” advises users to purchase just one color-changing Watch band rather than multiple ones to go with various outfits.

The recently granted patent suggests that users might want to be able to personalise their watch bands to express variety and style.

According to the user’s choice of clothing, other wearable items, environment, or other preferences, for instance, they might want a watch band in a particular colour.

The concept is described in Apple’s patent as “electrochromic features” on Watch bands, which means that “an applied voltage” can make a band display a variety of colours and colour combinations.

In addition, the report noted that although the patent tries to outline every potential application for its fundamental concept, the primary examples centre around bands made from a fabric woven from filaments.

How Will This Band Work?

Electrochromic features may be present in one or more of the filaments. According to Apple, one or more of the filaments may contain both an electrochromic layer and a conductor.

It is possible to electrically connect the conductor and electrochromic layer so that the voltage applied to the conductor is transmitted to the electrochromic layer. According to the supplement, the electrochromic layer may also contain a polymer layer that reacts to change colour when a voltage is applied.

The tech juggernaut added that colour choices could be made and altered without removing and switching out the watch band. As a result, different colours can be displayed at various times without the need for unique watch bands for every colour or colour combination.

According to the report, the patent was created by four people Zhengyu Li, Chia Chi Wu, and Qiliang Xu, and three of them had previously conducted research on touch-sensitive fabrics for a potential HomePod.
